Track Name: Because Of You
Because of you I can see the way to forever
And because of you my heart gave way and surrendered
In all my life, I have never felt this right
And when you are near, I never fear even in the worst times
And now I observe this planet earth in a whole different light
It’s all because of you

If you ever fall, I won’t let your memory remember
And through it all, I’ll be here with you through every endeavor
While I’m with you, your love will I sustain
And I’ll do my best to protect you from trouble and pain
And those lonely times that you felt inside no longer remain
‘cause you’re with me

I can’t wait for what’s in store
I can’t wait ‘cause I’m not one anymore
You’re here with me

Throughout my life, often I have been told
That you mustn’t settle for silver, that you must find the gold
And that’s what you are my lovely star whose light I now hold
I’m all because of you
Track Name: Walter Mitty
Walter Mitty would be proud of me
For duplicating his own legacy
‘cause nothing’s ever said
it’s all stuck in my head
and I don’t know how to say just what I need

Don’t say nothing, ‘cause I fear the worst
But it’s ironic, saying nothing hurts
So I drift day to day
With not much to convey
‘cause I don’t have what it takes to stand and lead

But never fear ‘cause in my dreams
I live in a world that’s so serene
Where in my mind I am a star
A trailblazer going far
But back on earth I’m just a timid man

I try to live inside my dreams
But that kind of world’s not what it seems
In my mind I’ve done it all
But out here I’ve hit the wall
And back on earth I’m just a timid man

You might be thinking, yes, you may inquire
Why I don’t tell you what my heart desires
Something that I dread
Those thoughts in my head
May, after all, not amount to much for me
It might be worse if I don’t succeed
